Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr is leaving no stone unturned in his bid to ensure Nigeria pick all three points in their next World Cup 2018 qualifiers against Algeria in Uyo.

The German disciplinarian has to that effect introduced new camp rules, which he discussed with captain of the team John Obi Mikel when they met in London last week.

The rules were introduced to keep the players focus ahead of the game, as Rohr has not been comfortable with the conduct of some players in the build up to the games against Tanzania and Zambia.

Rohr’s first rule is the instituting of a deadline for the arrival of players, as no player who arrive after the 7th of November will be admitted in camp.

The move is to checkmate the excesses of players who will arrive Nigeria early but drive to camp few days to the game, with excuses about flight connections or family problems.

Also from now henceforth players will not be allowed to keep their personal car in the premises of the hotel where the team are camped, no thanks to the furore Ahmed Musa caused when he arrived camp for the Zambia clash in a flashy car.

Friends and family members will also not get access to the players unlike before, until after the game, a situation the manager frowned at when he noticed it’s like a tradition for friends to visit the players or even live in same hotel with them before games.
